Regimental Journal

A regular regimental journal can be a valuable source of information. The Highland Light Infantry Chronicle was published quarterly, from Volume 1, no. 1 January 1893 to Volume 54, no. 3, December 1958. Some editions are available online, see below. The British Library has this publication in its catalogue. Another source may be the National Army Museum, or the Regimental Museum.
